Ferrari reveals overhauled 2024 F1 car

Ferrari has unveiled its 2024 Formula 1 car, one it's claimed is "95% new" compared to its predecessor.

Ferrari continues the final week of car launches before pre-season testing in Bahrain next week, with the reveal of its SF-24.

Ferrari said the design group "aimed to give Charles and Carlos a car that is easy to drive and that reacts predictably, with as a starting point, the positive feeling the drivers had in the cockpit over the final few races of last season".

"The goal is to allow them to make the most of the power unit’s potential, combined with their undoubted skill behind the wheel."

The SF-24 livery is largely the same as the paint job on the SF-23, with a migration of the black colouring, and parallel yellow and white stripes running along the length of the sidepod and on the nosecone being the big differences.

It follows the SF-23 which was the only non-Red Bull car to win a race last year, in the hands of Carlos Sainz in Singapore.

But it was overall a disappointment relative to its predecessor which had mounted an early-season title charge, albeit one that quickly fell away.

Team boss Fred Vasseur confirmed late last year that the 2024 car would feature "95% new components", such was the scale of change over the winter.

It's the first Ferrari Vasseur has properly overseen the development of, having started in his role in January last year when work on the SF-23 was essentially complete.

The SF-24 will also be the last Ferrari Carlos Sainz drives in his current tenure - as he'll be making way for Lewis Hamilton in 2025.

Charles Leclerc will continue, after a winter in which he put pen to paper on a new long-term deal with Ferrari.

Ferrari's unveiling leaves only Mercedes, McLaren and Red Bull to complete launch season, with the three scheduled reveals spread over Wednesday and Thursday.

The field will then convene in Bahrain on February 21 for three days of testing before the season opener kicks off on February 29.
